30 The words of Agur son of Jakeh. The oracle.1
I am weary, O God, and worn out.2
2 Surely I am too mstupid to be a man.
nor have I knowledge of nthe Holy One.
4 Who has oascended to heaven and come down?
Who has pgathered the wind in his fists?
Who has qwrapped up the waters in a garment?
Who has established all rthe ends of the earth?
sWhat is his name, and what is his son's name?
5 tEvery word of God proves true;
he is ua shield to those who take refuge in him.
6 vDo not add to his words,
deny them not to me wbefore I die:
feed me with the food that is xneedful for me,
and say, a“Who is the Lord?”
band profane the name of my God.
10 cDo not slander a servant to his master,
dlest he curse you, and you be held guilty.
12 There are those who are fclean in their own eyes
13 There are those—how glofty are their eyes,
14 There are those whose teeth are hswords,
whose ifangs are knives,
to jdevour the poor from off the earth,
Give and Give.4
kThree things are never satisfied;
kfour never say, “Enough”:
17 The eye that nmocks a father
and oscorns to obey a mother
kfour I do not understand:
under kfour it cannot bear up:
22 ta slave when he becomes king,
and a fool when he is ufilled with food;
24 kFour things on earth are small,
25 xthe ants are a people not strong,
26 ythe rock badgers are a people not mighty,
27 the locusts have no zking,
yet all of them march in arank;
29 bThree things are stately in their tread;
bfour are stately in their stride:
and cdoes not turn back before any;
and a king whose army is with him.6
eput your hand on your mouth.
